Since GM announced that it would be discontinuing the Pontiac brand, there has been a fair amount of speculation as to what (if any) effect this would have on values of pre-1973 collectible Pontiacs. I don’t anticipate any sudden increase in classic Pontiac values. While there might be a temporary increase in Pontiac interest in the near term – while the news is fresh – over the long term, we most likely won’t see a dramatic increase in the value of vintage Pontiacs. Similar questions were asked when GM discontinued Oldsmobile, but we did not see an increase in value for vintage 442s, 88s, etc. attributable to the death of Oldsmobile.
